Even right out of the gate to #2. It felt like:



I presume at some point we went down hill but I'm not much remembering it!

You do have fifty meters more climb than me, I went around a lot. :)

Also -- remarkably clean track from Maggie on Green.

Lots of carnage on orange, although the c mostly don't look too bad.

1 = white
2 = my vision of a proper orange, high point with visibility from good area
3 = yellow
4 = red, but with backstop trail plus three tail junctions within 100 m
5 = yellow
6 = orange I think (it's huge!) granted this area tripped up a lot on green and red too. Possibly visible from trail??
7 = red, trail backstop only one sided and somewhat narrow (could miss high or low and end up in parking lot of disc golf or something)
8 = yellow
9 = yellow
10 = yellow
11 = yellow
12 = white

Okay, looks like 7 may have done it - if the course hadn't busted people out before, that got the rest. Good to note for future orange design. One wonders about making the orange 7 location (leave 12 red as it is!) on a positive feature up on the plateau or on one of the marshes would make it more achievable.

Unrelated to that, the red LiveLox is almost hard to make sense of - before your track, the cairn looked fastest by trail but then you smoked it straight. You've got fastest results that are straight, fastest that are trail based, and not consistent in why that I've been able to sort, other than "anything can be fast if you go fast and don't screw it up".
